Restoration / Herreshoff Eagle engine well damage
« Last post by Almtree on August 20, 2019, 12:04:17 AM »
Hello everybody,
My grandfather and I are attempting to restore his Herreshoff Eagle. The problem is that 14 years ago he wanted to get a new engine for it that could replace the old merc that he had before. The conversation went, I want the biggest HP engine that will easily fit inside the engine well. The boat mechanic at the local marina bought an engine that did not fit the original engine well. So he proceeded to modify the well by grinding out the sides and cutting the transom down at least 2 inches. After the work was done the boat sank in the first dock of the marina.

Does anybody have any advise or can take pictures of their herreshoff eagle or america engine well with a tape measure so we can build out the walls and transom to the original size. We would need to have the transom height, the engine well length and width.

I can provide some images to help in a couple days.

Any help would really be appreciated!

I would like to replace my 2 stroke outboard in my Eagle with a four stroke motor and would like to know if anyone has any suggestion as to which motor works best. My current motor is an 8HP Nissan that'e very noisy and belches a lot of smoke into the cockpit. I tried replacing it with a 4 stroke Yamaha 8HP but the lower unit couldn't fit through the well. Any thoughts?

"Optimal" is a choice word for engine size on a sailboat. 

Decide on how you want to mount/use it:  always hung off the stern, side mount, removed for racing, in and out of a tight marina only, port to port on a long quiet sound or bay, etc.

If you plan to regularly remove it, smaller is better--3 hp.

If you plan on using for longer runs, and leave it on the stern, up to 6 hp.  Anything more is overkill. 

The electric torquedo's are nice for compact size, thrust, and quiet. 

Nice question, come back to the Herreshoff Forum as you progress.

Wonderful find!  The family boat when I was young was a FI-23, hull 1222. Tigress.
